Hello Manuel,

If I understand the goal correctly, it's to interact with a trajectory through a browser. I spent a few hours trying to figure this out in March, and I stumbled upon an R package, r3dmol (based on 3Dmol.js), that can do this for Rmarkdown sites without too much hassle. I had to build a multi-frame PDB of the portion of the trajectory I wanted, so file sizes are definitely a concern.

Hello John,

Understood. It is precisely because I couldnt find any webgl based tools
that support trajectories that I was wondering if vmd had something that I
could use.

In any case, thank you for your help.

All the best
Manuel Mourato
